This cartridge utilizes an extremely heavy 200 grain bullet to achieve its subsonic 1,060 fps muzzle velocity. It can’t break the sound barrier to make a sharp cracking sound, although you’re probably going to notice so slow a bullet follows a markedly steep trajectory if you fire it over longer distances.
The bullet itself is inherently accurate, however. As an open tip it features a concentric copper jacket with a very small aperture in its nose. Winchester injected molten lead through the opening so it would cool in place without forming gaps or voids that could impact in-flight rotational stability. The bullet’s flat base creates a consistent, level surface for propellant gas to push against, and because the bullet’s base is fully encapsulated by its jacket it doesn’t let lead evaporate to deposit residue on the bore’s rifling or a suppressor’s baffles.
This American-made 300 Blackout round’s accurate bullet is seated in the mouth of a new production brass case, with a non-corrosive Boxer primer for even cleaner performance and the option to reload after the range day has ended.
